The DAVID Delight utilizes Audio-Visual Entrainment (AVE), a technique that uses pulses of light and sound at specific frequencies to gently and safely guide you into various brain wave patterns. By changing your brain wave frequencies, you can boost your mood, improve sleep patterns, sharpen your mind and increase your level of relaxation, all with the push of a button.

About Brainwave Frequencies
The DAVID Delight uses flashing lights and pulsing tones to guide your brain into various brainwave states. These brainwave states are typically grouped into four different categories: Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta. Each one is associated with specific states of mind.
Beta 12+ Hz - Awake/alert
Beta waves are quick, low amplitu de waves of 14 to 40 times per second (Hz). Beta brainwave patterns are generated naturally when in an awake, focused and alert state of consciousness.
Alpha 8-12 Hz - Relaxed
Alpha Waves are between 8 and 13 Hz and occur during sensorial rest (eg. when the eyes are closed), intellectual relaxation, deep relaxation or meditation.
Theta 5-7 Hz - Falling asleep
Theta Waves are between 4 and 8 Hz and are commonly referred to as the dream or “twilight” state. Theta is associated with hypnagogic states, REM and dreaming.
Delta 1-4 Hz - Deep sleep
Delta Waves are observed when in a sleeping state. As we fall asleep the dominant natural brainwave becomes Delta. Delta waves are the slowest of brainwaves spanning from 1 to 4 Hz in frequency.
DAVID Delight Features
Tru-Vu Omniscreen Eyeset
Offers the most effective and safe light-and-sound experience. 8 white LEDs mounted over a silver reflector behind a translucent screen disperse light evenly to your eyes. Extremely efficient LEDs last for over 100,000 hours and provide a long battery life.
Isochronic Pulsed Tones, Binaural Beats and Monaural
The audio tones of the DAVID Delight are evenly spaced, are of equal pitch, and are turned on and off at a specified rate to enhance audio entrainment effectiveness.
Sound Sync Sessions
Each category also has a Sound Sync Session to turn your music into an intriguing light show. All sessions include HRV, and begin with a 3-stage process to enhance dissociation.
The gradual lowering of the lights and tones at` the end of the session prevent you from being startled by abrupt volume and brightness changes. Soft-Off ensures that relaxation and other benefits carry over, even after a session has ended.
Easy-To-Find Power, Intensity and Volume Buttons
The buttons are raised so that you can make the necessary adjustments easily and quickly, even with your eyes closed.
Battery Power Indicator
At a quick glance you can tell if your battery has enough power to run your session. New eyeset technology allows for much longer battery life.
Audio-Visual Entrainment (AVE) uses flashes of lights and pulses of tones to gently and safely guide the brain into various brain wave patterns to boost your mood, help with sleep, sharpen your mind and increase your level of relaxation. Our AVE devices are also used successfully to boost physical performance for athletes, academic performance for students and cognitive performance for seniors.
Brainwaves change frequencies based on neural activity within the brain. Each of our senses (vision, touch, smell, taste and hearing) respond to activity from the environment and transmit that information to the brain. The senses of sight and hearing, by their very nature, provide a favorable mechanism to influence brainwaves. By presenting this pulsed audio and visual stimulation to the brain, after a short period of time, the brain begins to resonate, or entrain, at the same frequency as the stimulus. With the DAVID devices, we can slow down the brainwaves for meditating, inducing dream states and improving sleep. The DAVID can also be used to speed up brainwaves to help with improving mood, enhancing mental performance and boosting creativity.
In addition to entrainment, the imagery created by the visual and auditory stimulation provides a focus for the mind and quiets internal dialogue or chatter. The various areas of the brain begin to integrate into one whole functioning unit like the masters of meditation. With the DAVID, it is normal for most people to experience that same peace and tranquility of a meditator with only a half hour of use with any of the DAVIDs.
AVE is not only valuable for clinical use, but it has done wonders for increasing peak performance. Former Mr. Olympia - Bodybuilder Frank Zane states, "I'm in the best shape of my life, and one reason is mind machines." Golfer Rocky Thompson attributes his winning of the PGA to using the DAVID Paradise. Sports Psychologist Tom Hawes has used the DAVID Paradise in training several golfers in the LPGA. Christine Boudrais attributed her Silver Medal at the Lillihammer Olympics to using the DAVID Paradise for relaxing and visualizing.
Michael Hutchison, author of Megabrain, states, "In fact, out of all the mind machines I have evaluated, the DAVID is the one that I keep by my bed for my own light and sound/audio-visual entrainment sessions."
Mind Alive is continuously researching the effectiveness of using the DAVID for a wide variety of applications, allowing us to prove the technology and secure patents for those applications.
Mind Alive has combined years of market research and product development to offer you products with features and benefits not seen on "light and sound" devices (which are usually made for entertainment, not entrainment). All of the DAVIDs meet the necessary Power, Consistency, Frequency and Psychological Compatibility Rules, which are crucial in order for brainwave entrainment to occur effectively and safely. This makes the DAVID devices the most powerful and versatile portable AVE devices on the market today.Warning Epileptics and Photo-Epileptics should NOT use any DAVID without the consent of their physician. Persons with a history of brain seizures, mental disorders or alcohol and/or drug abuse should also not use the DAVID unless first consulting their medical doctor. The DAVID is not recognized as a treatment or cure of any medical condition or disability. However, research suggests that the DAVID is an effective relaxation and meditation tool.
